The PEAL Center, Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, and LEND are hosting an Institute for youth with disabilities to become empowered by embracing their disabilities and learning self-advocacy skills.
The Institute will be held Sunday, February 28, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., at 3535 Market St, Philadelphia, PA, 19104.
Youth with disability from southeastern Pennsylvania, ages 16-25, are encouraged to participate in a Youth Development Institute and to bring their experiences to the group. Exciting activities are planned for youth to network with other young leaders who are making a difference in their communities.
The Youth Development Institute works to promote the development of self-awareness, self-acceptance, self-advocacy, and self-determination of youth with disabilities. The YDI is meant to develop confident youth who have the necessary skills to self-advocates. The YDI leaders are responsible for fostering an atmosphere of acceptance, tolerance, and fun.
